Welcome to the beginning of another year. We've had an interesting winter this year with cold and mild days...some days with sun and others with none. These days just make us stop and think about warmer weather. While we are looking forward to spring let's consider some updates to our homes that will help us pass the time indoors and increase value to our home at the same time.
Let’s delve into paint, an inexpensive way to update and refresh your home. It can change the ambiance of a room from restful and subdued to vibrant and invigorating. Houses painted in modern shades will more likely capture a buyer’s interest, as it denotes a well maintained trendy home. That sense of modern appeal translates into value and can easily increase the asking price of a home.
With so many paint colors to choose from how do you select the right color. If you're looking to sell your home in the near future...be sure to pick neutral colors. There is a wide pallet of neutrals from off whites to grays and browns that will show off the home and intrigue potential buyers. Keep the flow from room to room smooth and transitional. If you're looking to refresh your home for your own personal use then feel free to work with several coordinating shades. Choose several paint sample colors to take home and tape them to your walls. You want to see how the lighting during the day and night affects the color. Make sure that the paint tones work together, sometimes using warm and cool tones together will not create the effect you are trying to achieve.
Don't scrimp when it comes to paint, use a good product. Your results will reflect the quality of the paint.
So grab your brushes and have some fun!
I spent a lot of summers at a beautiful lake, where the water was fresh and clear. The evening sunsets reflected on that calm water creating a mirror image and the morning air held the anticipation of another enjoyable day. Every minute at this lake was to be savored...so I felt it appropriate to add this picture to my blog page.
